Shopping and Heritage in Bangkok Riverside

Lhong 1919 Bangkok is a 19th century Chinese mansion that has been fully restored and opened as an attraction. It mixes Bangkok heritage with shopping, dining and lots of interesting photo opportunities – it ticks all the boxes for a fun day out in Bangkok.

The centre point of this old Chinese manor is the large shrine to Mazu, the Chinese goddess of seafarers. The air is heavy with the scent of incense and smoke and many people will kneel to say a prayer. As you walk around the courtyard and rooms, you can see period fixtures and artefacts displayed for visitors to see. In parts, it feels a little like a theme park recreation of what a 19th century Chinese mansion should be, but it’s still wildly popular with locals and visitors.

What to Buy at Lhong 1919

The ground floor of the main building has a row of boutique stores. For home furnishings, candles and other gorgeously scented items, check out Thai brand Karma Kamet. Zettino is a leather brand, which makes wallets, belts and various other apparel. Other shops sell plants, homeware and fashion, and there’s a souvenir shop at the roadside entrance.

If you get hungry, there’s a Thai restaurant and a smart coffeeshop set up on the riverside. If you just fancy a casual snack or fruit smoothie, you’ll find several stalls along the main thoroughfare leading up to the shrine.
